Penn State Smeal Partners with the Forté Foundation to Support Women in MBA Programs

Forté's fellowship opportunities offer financial support to women MBA candidates

Penn State's Smeal College of Business has partnered with the Forté Foundation to offer increased support for women studying on the school's MBA programs.

Through the partnership, MBA students at Smeal can now attend Forté events, gain access to the foundation's job support offerings, and connect with a broad network.

The partnership will also offer the opportunity for Smeal MBA students to apply for Forté's fellowship offerings, which offer financial support to women MBA candidates. 

The Forté Foundation was founded in 2001 to change the balance of the workplace by giving women equal access to resources to help them get ahead.
